    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Local authority accident claim


    Although it is something that we do not think about each time we leave our home, the possibility of having to make a local authority accident claim is always there. Most of the places we visit such as shopping centres, parks, schools and leisure facilities are managed and maintained by our local authority. The responsibility of maintaining and managing all of these facilities lies with the local council who have rigorous health and safety measures in place to reduce the risk of either their employees, or the general public from injuring themselves. No matter how specific the protective measures might be there remains the possibility that an accident can still occur. Despite all the precautions and preventative measures that have been implemented, it does not absolve the local authority of responsibility in certain circumstances where an accident has occurred.

    Accident Advice Helpline is the market-leading law firm specialising in personal injury compensation claims. When you have suffered an injury as the result of an accident, and that accident was the fault of a third party, Accident Advice Helpline will ensure that your compensation claim is handled professionally and expediently.

    The in-house legal experts understand the trauma an injury can inflict upon you and those close to you. The financial hardship that can be incurred if you have to take time away from your employment can be substantial, due to the pressure it puts on you with bills and working to sustain the lifestyle to which you are accustomed. This is just one of the reasons that Accident Advice Helpline ensures that you suffer no further financial worry and only takes cases on a no win, no fee* basis. There are no upfront fees to be paid. The details surrounding your accident will need to be explored in order to progress with your case. Providing any physical evidence to our expert solicitors will be invaluable in assuring that you are awarded the highest amount of compensation possible.

    So if you have suffered an injury that you believe was caused as a result of negligent actions, poor maintenance or any other type of fault that could be attributed to the local authority, you should call the free, 24-hour helpline at 0800 689 0500 immediately. You can also dial 0333 500 0993 on a mobile. Alternatively, text the phrase ‘Claim365’ to 8801 and one of our experienced compensation claims experts will call you back to discuss the basis of your case and commence the process of compensation for your injury and losses. There is no cost to you, whichever way you choose to make contact, and there is zero financial risk as you will receive honest and expert advice on the local authority accident claim you are exploring. For an indication of the amount of compensation you could receive, you can take advantage of our free, 30-second compensation calculator on our website before you call.
